ECE Student received Best Student Paper Award at ISITA 2020

ECE Ph.D.  candidate Navid Gharavi has received Best Student Paper Award for the paper "Codes for high-noise memoryless channels" presented at the 2020 International Symposium on Information Theory and Application (ISITA) .  The paper co-authored with ECE Professor Ilya Dumer studies new coded modulation techniques  that can reliably transmit data over the noisy memoryless channels.  These new codes have low complexity per information bit and can be used  for the low-power  applications - such as the Internet of Things and sensor networks -  where channel noise may exceed  the transmitted signals by a few orders of magnitude.
